UK’s best price and quality

Light. Robust. Unputdownable. Paperback books, bound to last.

Easy to pick up. Hard to put down. Paperback books are made to be read. But they’re also often tossed into suitcases, shoved into pockets, and enjoyed on trains, planes, and sunloungers. It’s important that they maintain their integrity, so that their stories can be told.

Choose from our range of binding options (perfect bound or stapled), paper types and weights, and trim sizes to make sure your epic sci-fi tale or windswept romance novel stays in one piece.

I was doing a uni project where I need magazines to display my work, and Mixam came up on my google search. The colours were so high quality and vivid, and such a good price. I've told all my classmates about this service and will use it for future projects for sure!

Amazing high standard quality of printing. Very happy with my products:) Will definitely use again in the future. A little slow on delivery, however, it’s expected round this time of year

Had some issues with the website, but that was made up for by the exceptional service and assistance I received. Claire, in particular, was attentive, friendly and quick to respond. She picked up on an error which I had missed (twice!) but her patience with me never wavered. And the wiro booklets themselves? Gorgeous. Print quality is fantastic. I will absolutely 100% be ordering from them again and will recommend them to anyone else.

I'm really impressed with the quality of the printed booklets I ordered, especially for the price. I'm also impressed with the level of customer service. I had some questions before I ordered, and the staff were knowledgeable and helpful in answering my queries about technical matters. And unfortunately a large proportion of the first batch of booklets were damaged in transit (not Mixam's fault!) and I needed replacements sorting in a rush. The staff were great in solving the problem and getting my replacements out to me quickly. I would definitely use Mixam again.

Excellent, Simple and easy to use and excellent quality magazine completed. If you are struggling with the paper quality you can request sample packs and they are very helpful for helping you get the quality you will require.

Info for file setup

Paperback book print
file setup information

How to supply your print files
You can supply your files in a way that suits you - as single pages or spreads, individual files for each page, or as a single combined file.
Important - your cover
Your cover is made up of four pages - a front cover, an inside front cover, a back cover, and an inside back cover.
Bleed
We ask for a 3mm bleed on all paperback books. Please do not include any important content within this area.
Format and orientation
You can choose either an A4 (210 x 297 mm) or A5 (148 x 210 mm) format, and a landscape or portrait orientation.
Binding
The binding options available for paperback books are perfect bound or stapled. For books with fewer than 25 pages, we recommend printing as a booklet.
Please note:
These available binding options are entirely dependent upon the number of pages and paper weight selected for your order. This is because there comes a point where the combined paper thickness is too much to effectively staple or stitch together, and will instead need to be held together by adhesive (otherwise known as ‘perfect binding’).

The opposite is true if there are too few pages for perfect binding to work. Our dynamic ordering system is smart enough to know when a limit has been reached, and will automatically switch to the required binding option.

Spine (for Perfect Binding)
If you choose perfect binding you have the option to upload the spine as a separate print file. The spine depth is calculated and displayed in the shopping cart. If you do not upload a print file for your spine it will be left blank.
The spine will also need a 3mm bleed at the top and bottom.
Completing your order
Before you can complete your order, you must make sure all page placeholders have been completed. For example, if you are ordering 32 pages, all 32 boxes must be filled. If you do not have enough content, you must add blank pages.
